YAKIMA, Wash. (AP) - Police say nearly two dozen charges are expected against a man following an incident at a Yakima child development center.

The Yakima Herald-Republic reports (https://goo.gl/sdK0Qi ) 19 children ages 3 and 4 were playing in a fenced area at the center when police say a 31-year-old man approached Tuesday morning.

Police say the children were never in immediate danger but the man - a documented mental health patient - used hand gestures mimicking a gun and threatened to kill them.

Police arrested the man on suspicion of 21 counts of felony harassment involving the children and two adults with them.
